FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT
FUE method allows transfer of healthy hair graft (from donor area) to hair loss areas (recipient) without scarring.
FUE Hair Transplant
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant is a procedure that transfers healthy hair follicles from donor area to hair loss areas with lesser downtime and no scarring at the donor area.
FUE refers to the method of how the hair follicles are harvested and transferred to hair loss areas.
Over-production of male hormone is the main cause for hair loss. Hair follicles at the top of your head are hormone sensitive whereas hair follicles at the sides and back of scalp are less affected. The hormone-independent hair follicles harvested from the back of scalp retain their resistance to hormone even at the recipient site. Hence, this allows favorable hair growth at the hormone affected hair loss area.

Success rate of FUE Hair transplant
Graft survival decides the success rate of hair transplant.
According to Graft Survival Studies, an average of 90% survival rate for all follicular units is achievable.
However, there is a range of success rate between 70-95% due to variations in skin condition and hair characters.
After the transplantation, the hairs will undergo a cycle of temporary growth and loss of hair. The next hair regrowth (averagely 6 months later) will be much longer-lasting, ranging from 10 years to a lifetime!

On average, it takes 8 to 10 hours, depending on the complexity and number of grafts. For hair graft not more than 3000, it can be done in one session.
The number of grafts depends on condition so it vary from patient to patient. It depends on the size of area for transplantation.
Usually 1 hair transplant session can go up to 3000 grafts for typical balding male condition.
It is not painful after adequately numbed with local anesthesia (lignocaine). After the procedure, you may take simple pain killer when necessary.
Immediately after the procedure, you should plan to go home and rest (minimal activity) until the next morning. Temporary swelling at forehead may occur around 2-4 days following procedure but it will not leave any permanent mark/scar.
It is advisable to avoid heavy physical activity for the first 2-3 days after a hair transplant procedure. You can resume light physical activities after the first 5 days and return to normal activities after 10 – 14 days. It is recommended to remain indoors for 7 days are to avoid sun exposures on the scalp.
Also, avoid swimming pool, steam rooms and saunas for 1-2 months after procedure.
The recovery and hair regrow process varies individually. Generally, one can expect to see natural and healthy hair growth from 6 to 12 months.
Hair transplantation is generally very successful. Studies have shown that approximately 85-95% of all the transplanted hairs will grow in the recipient site.
Yes, it is a safe procedure, especially when carried out by experienced team, in a proper medical clinic setting.
Unfortunately no, the hair in the donor area will not grow back.
To accelerate healing and potentially speed up hair regrowth, many patients utilize low level laser light therapy such as iGrow laser system. This therapy can be started as soon as the day after the procedure. It slows the progression of hair loss in about 70-80% of patients with long term use, and can even thicken the existing hairs.
AnteAGE MD hair growth system can also be done post Hair Transplant to initiate healing.
